Class Registration

"Registration" is the process of signing up for your classes.  You will have to register for your classes every semester after meeting with your advisor.

Please see step 3 below for information on how to complete your Registration Eligibility form, since you will most likely be outside of Alaska when registering for classes for the first time.

It's never too early to start thinking about the steps you'll need to complete to register for classes. Once you have finished your admissions application and received your letter of acceptance you will need to complete the follow steps:.

  1. Academic advising
    Academic advising is crucial to your educational success and is required for all undergraduate students prior to registration each semester.  Work with your academic advisor to build an academic plan. See our page on academic advising for more information on how to find your academic advisor and build an academic plan.
  2. Find your courses
    Use the Course Finder to look up courses.
  3. Complete the Registration Eligibilty form
    Using the academic plan you and your advisor developed and the courses you found in Course Finder, complete the Registration Eligibility form.  Sign it and e-mail it to your academic advisor. Your academic advisor will then forward that form to the Office of Admissions and the Registrar, giving you permission to sign up for your classes.  
    Note:  Undergraduate students must complete the Registration Eligibility form every semester. Graduate students only need to complete the Registration Eligibility form for their first semester of study.
  4. Register early
    Register and pay for classes online through UAOnline.

Logging into UAOnline

In order to register for classes, you will need to log into the UAF website called UAOnline (this is the website you most likely used to apply for admission).

Here are the steps to login:

  1. Go to UAOnline.
  2. Click on the Login to Secured Area (students, staff, & faculty) link.
  3. Enter your User ID.
    • Your User ID will be your 8-digit Student ID or Employee ID.
    • If you forget your ID, you can look it up using ELMO.
    • For additional assistance students can contact the Office of the Registrar.
  4. Enter your PIN (Personal Identification Number).
    • NEW students can login to ELMO to retrieve their PIN (view the Certified Mail message).  This information is available for 30 days in ELMO.
      • Your PIN will also be mailed to the mailing address the University has on file for you. Note: If you have logged into UAOnline and changed your PIN before receiving the mailer, you don't need to change it again.
    • When you login to UAOnline for the first time, or after a reset, you will be prompted to change your PIN.
      • Your PIN must be six characters.  It is case-sensitive, alphanumeric, and can include spaces and punctuation.  You may not use your date of birth.
    • Memorize your PIN.
      For privacy and security, do not share your PIN with anyone.
  5. Click the Login button.
    • The first time you login to UAOnline, you will also be asked to create a security question and answer.  The security question will allow you to reset your PIN at a later date, if necessary.  You can also update, or review, your Security Question through the Personal Information section in UAOnline.
      • Be certain to complete the Security Question after logging into UAOnline the first time.
